InterruptingQuirk: Smeggy Smurf: Arkanaut: When did the Vikings stop being the Vikings and just became Norwegians / Danes / Swedes?

Once they realized they were running out of people after killing the women and raping the sheep.  Once they got that figured out their population expanded, they settled down and became traders.  Becaues dammit if you don't trade well then your kid isn't going to get the GI Joe with the Kung Fu grip and your old lady isn't going to have sex with you anymore

If all it takes to be king is to declare yourself so and then live in a freaky way, I know a lot of kings.

LazyMedia: Dansker: Now I Is!: Arkanaut: When did the Vikings stop being the Vikings and just became Norwegians / Danes / Swedes?

The never really were a people called Vikings, it comes from a Norse word meaning "an expedition at sea". It wasn't who were it what doing. It was only centuries later that, in English, the word evolved into an epithet for "pirates of Scandinavian descent".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikings

Another way to answer that qustion is "After the last Danish king was kicked out of England, and the Scandinavians began bickering internally about who sould rule the others."

He wasn't kicked out so much as shot through the eye with an arrow.

Details, details.
The really fun part though, is that the English king who succesfully led the battle to rid England of their viking overloard was killed a few weeks later when French-speaking descandants of Danish vikings invaded from the south.

RTFA. Raiding is banned. So these aren't Vikings, they're just medieval Norsemen, living off of rutabagas and dried cod. Kind of pathetic, really.

'I just declared it,' he says of the moment he was crowned king of the Viking village. 'I said OK I am king. It was my decision.
[...]
'All the other Vikings will be out working in the fields and working on the farm but I can spend my time just looking around, or sailing or enjoying a chat or playing a game.'


I bet this is how it all started back in the stone age, too.  One dude finally had the nuts to say "No seriously I'm in charge and don't have to work" and no one called him on it.


'Everyone thinks it was meat and meat and meat,' he explains of his Viking forebears. 'But it wasn't, they ate with their hands and it was berries and pork.

I too sometimes do away with meat in favor of pork.
